The Campus Ministry Program at St. Teresa High School focuses on the need to develop and support the faith life of student, faculty, and staff. Its goal is to maintain the Catholic identity in which the school was established and to promote an atmosphere of Catholic Christian tradition. The Campus Ministry Office attempts to provide the pastoral services to the school community in a similar way that one’s local parish does to parishioners. At the same time, it does not wish to replace the faith community of the parish, nor the catechetical mission of parents. We hope that Campus Ministry gives students ministry experience to prepare them to become more fully involved with their faith and the life of their individual parishes.
Campus Ministry works toward formation of all members of St. Teresa High School living responsible Christian lives to minister to the needs of each other.
Campus Ministry is seen as an integrated expression of Christianity growing out of the Theology Department and operated on the firm foundation of doctrine and tradition in the Theology classrooms. Four components are essential to the faith life of St. Teresa High School: Christian Service, Curriculum, Worship, and Retreat
